Analysis of diversity and population structure in the Lipizzan horse breed based on pedigree information
The pedigrees of 565 Lipizzan horses from eight European studs were traced back to the individuals considered as the founding population of the breed. The length of pedigrees was up to 32Expand

Microsatellite diversity, population subdivision and gene flow in the Lipizzan horse.
Blood samples of 561 Lipizzan horses from subpopulations (studs) of seven European countries representing a large fraction of the breed's population were used to examine the genetic diversity,Expand

Genetic characterisation and breed assignment in Austrian sheep breeds using microsatellite marker information.
Samples from 717 sheep of 11 Austrian sheep breeds were genotyped for 25 microsatellite loci. Twenty-one loci showing no deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium were used to calculate pairwiseExpand

Genetic relatedness in groups is sex‐specific and declines with age of helpers in a cooperatively breeding cichlid
Kin selection can explain the evolution of cooperative breeding and the distribution of relatives within a population may influence the benefits of cooperative behaviour. We provide genetic data onExpand

Inbreeding, microsatellite heterozygosity, and morphological traits in Lipizzan horses.
While the negative effects of inbreeding and reduced heterozygosity on fecundity and survival are well established, only a few investigations have been carried out concerning their influence onExpand

Fixed nucleotide differences on the Y chromosome indicate clear divergence between Equus przewalskii and Equus caballus.
The phylogenetic relationship between Equus przewalskii and E. caballus is often a matter of debate. Although these taxa have different chromosome numbers, they do not form monophyletic clades in aExpand

Mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy in cloned cattle produced by fetal and adult cell cloning
Mammals have been cloned from adult donor cells. Here we report the first cases of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) heteroplasmy in adult mammalian clones generated from fetal and adult donor cells. TheExpand

Isolation of Y chromosome-specific microsatellites in the horse and cross-species amplification in the genus Equus.
Y chromosome polymorphisms such as microsatellites or single nucleotide polymorphisms represent a paternal counterpart to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) for evolutionary and phylogeographic studies. TheExpand

PrP genotyping of Austrian sheep breeds.
Scrapie, an ovine and caprine transmissible spongiforme encephalopathy, is widely spread among sheep populations in many European countries. As it is known that susceptibility to scrapie isExpand

Last–male sperm precedence in the bushcricket Poecilimon veluchianus (Orthoptera, Tettigonioidea) demonstrated by DNA fingerprinting
Males of the bushcricket Poecilimon veluchianus pass a large spermatophore to the female during mating. The spermatophore is eaten by the female after copulation. Because females mate with severalExpand
